Cells require nutrients for energy and for synthesizing the molecules for survival. They generate waste products and eliminate them. In this module we will discuss the general characteristics of the four major classes of biomolecules. :__m leculesare ' b livin or ani tain carbon atoms. Click the chemical bonds button: This module is a basic review of biochemistry. Understanding biology requires understanding some chemistry- especially the structure and interactions of atoms, ions, and molecules. So the next few slides will review the chemical bonds that hold atoms together to form the molecules required for life. Atoms are the fundamental units and are made up of three types of elementary particles — protons, elections and neurons. Atoms are most stable when all of their orbitals are occupied by Wm. Isolated atoms, such as hydrogen (H), carbon (C), nitrogen (N) and oxygen (0), have some orbitals that are not occupied by 8 two electrons. For example, hydrogen is an atom that has Go to next screen: Most substances are composed of two or more atoms linked or bonded together to form molecules.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
